So I hope you all had a nice relaxing holiday and got lots of nice things for your tanks from Santa.
I got a few things and am closing in on being able to set up my tank. But first...a few more questions for you guys.
I have an emperor 400 biowheel filter, an r/o unit, a Magnum 350 canister filter (I know nothing about this filter, it came with the tank), a gravel vaccuum, a hydor koralia circulation and wave pump (1050 gph
), and a jager 150 W heater. My tank is 65 gal
, will be FOWLR
I am planning on getting a thermometer, airstone, refractometer, test kit, substrate, protein skimmer, a garbage can (for mixing water), salt, and live rock. What else do I need? Or is there something I have or am planning on getting that I don't need? Which protein skimmer would you recommend? I see algae and detritus attack packs on liveaquaria...is that something I need? Would sand or crushed coral be better for my purposes? I also have a flourescent light with two 30 watt bulbs. Is that adequate? Or do I need to upgrade?
Thanks for your help! Getting close...I can feel it. Can't wait to get some fish.
